I am often asked the best way to start a blog. My answer hasn’t varied much over the years, so I’m finally going to capture my answer as a series of concise admonitions.
I started this website in 1999, which, at the time of writing, makes 20 years blogging. In that time I’ve probably used every major blog platform that’s existed, which I’d guess has been no less than 20. I’ve done everything from pure HTML, Ruby, Node, Python, self-hosting, multiple third-party providers, all the way to my current setup.
Anyway, all that means is I’ve made lots of mistakes in these last two decades. And they’re mistakes that I can hopefully keep you from repeating.
No matter what you do, pay attention to these.
1. Your domain is your identity; pick it carefully
You need to decide if it’s a site about you, or a site about something specific and temporary.
I mostly recommend
firstnamelastname.com, like this site because it gives you maximum freedom to explore stuff you care about. But if you have a specific project that you expect to have for at least 70 years, feel free to use something different. Err on the side of being too broad with your domain rather than too narrow.
Domain name changes are damaging to site reputation, so try to avoid them.
You don’t want to start a blog at 25 called
blackberrytips.com, find out in 15 years that you’re actually into Buddhism, and end up writing about meditation on a domain with Blackberry in the name.
2. Use a solid domain registrar, like Google or Cloudflare
Be sure to lock these down with two-factor authentication.
I personally would stay away from groups that talk about how cheap they are, or who use other silly advertising to get you to sign up. Again, your domain is everything, so protect it.
Protect your domain’s DNS the same way, and consider using your domain provider as your DNS host as well.
3. Your URL Structure Matters a Lot
Spend a lot of time in the very beginning thinking about the structure of your site and the structure of your URLs. In general you want as few
/ slashes as possible in a URL, and I don’t recommend using the date as your leading structure.
Ideally you want maybe one level deep (like /blog, /articles, /research, etc), followed by 3-5 primary words that describe the post, e.g.,
/blog/so-you-want-start-blog. That’s what makes it easiest for Google to read your content.
What to Avoid (Don’ts)
These are the things to avoid.
Avoid Third-party Blogging Platforms
Every few years a new blogging platform comes along that is the slickest looking thing around. Blogger, Tumblr, Medium, Squarespace, etc—they all promise the world and end up going out of business eventually. Or worse, they sell out due to financial hardship or greed.
Either way you’re left doing a migration that takes tons of time and probably messes your site up in the process. Don’t use them.
What to do (Do’s)
Use Common and Popular Software
That doesn’t mean it has to be number one, but don’t pick number nine either. Going with one of the top 2 or 3 options means your platform will have maximum scrutiny and therefore faster patching if something goes wrong.
It also means it’s likely to last for a very long time.
Pick Software Without Lock-in
Make sure you pick a software package that has incentives that are truly aligned with independent content publishing. This is why you want to avoid the platforms mentioned above: they always (eventually) will try to do things in non-standard ways, make it difficult to migrate away from them, and/or will store your content in a proprietary format that doesn’t export well.
If You’re Not Technical, Consider Using a Service
It’s not a problem to use a hosted blogging service, you just want to make sure that it’s a pure one.
That means that it’s clean hosting of one of the software options above that’s popular and that doesn’t lock you in—as opposed to their own software on their own platform that doesn’ really export well.
Ok, so since I’ve just given advice so far, here’s my tangible recommendation.
- Get your domain from Google or Cloudflare.
- Get your DNS from them too.
- Lock them down with 2FA.
- Either build yourself a VPS or find a host for your blog.
- If you’re self-hosting, I recommend AWS.
- If you’re using a service I recommend FlyWheel or Pantheon.
- For the blogging software itself, I recommend WordPress, Hugo, or Host—in that order.
- Make sure you (or your provider) keeps your entire stack updated regularly.
- The primary thing that will make your blog popular is consistent creation of content that’s at least 1,000 words in length. Everything else is highly secondary.
- Don’t overthink it. Focus on the writing, not on the tech.

If You Only Had 21 Days Left to Live, What Would You Want to Accomplish Before You Go?
Bringing your most important ideas to life isn’t easy. If you find yourself procrastinating, too busy to get your most important work done, or not sure how to get started, something needs to change before it’s too late.
You’re only going to live for a set number of years, and once your time is up you won’t be able to check off your bucket list, accomplish that important goal, or achieve

If you want start hacking you must know that there are three types of hackers.
who are White Hats,
The White Hat hacker has dedicated himself to fight malware and help others with their computer problems. He is a person you can trust, and he will most likely end up in a good paying job as a computer programmer or a security consultant. He will most certainly not end up in jail.
The Grey Hat hacker are in between white Hats and Black Hats. He will most likely commit pranks at people that he thinks is harmless, but it can also be illegal. He can at one time be helpful and help you with a computer problem, but at the same time infect you with his own virus. There is a chance that the grey hat will end up in prison.
The Black hat hacker also known as a cracker is the one who deface websites, steal private information and such illegal activity. It is very time consuming to become a black hat. It can be very hard for them to get a job because of the illegal activity. If law enforcements gets you, you can expect jail time.
So where to start?
You should know the answer to these questions before you start your hacking career.
Which type of hacker do you want to be white hat, grey hat or black hat? ,
Which type of hacking do you want to work with website hacking, system exploits, pentesting.
You should meet these requirements to become a successful hacker.
first, You shall be patient.
secondly,You shall dedicate a lot of time to hacking. You will never stop learning, since hacking is a lifestyle.
thirdly, You should have a computer and finallyYou shall be interested in how the different computer systems works, and how to control them.
All good hackers know many language of programing. So if you want be hacker you should Learn the language of programing. You can start learn Pythong. Python is a good language to start off with because it’s cleanly designed, well documented, and relatively kind to beginners. Despite being a good first language, it is not just a toy? it is very powerful, flexible, and well-suited for large projects. Java is an alternative, but its value as a first programming language has been questioned. If you get into serious programming, you will have to learn C, the core language of Unix. C++ is very closely related to C; if you know one, learning the other will not be difficult. C is very efficient with your machine’s resources, but will soak up huge amounts of your time on debugging and is often avoided for that reason, unless the efficiency of your computer is especially important.
you should have Networking Skills, you need to understand the basics of networking, such as the following.
Public v Private IP,
Routers and switches,
Many good hackers have Linux Skills.
It is extremely critical to develop Linux skills to become a hacker. Nearly all the tools we use as a hacker are developed for Linux and Linux gives us capabilities that we don’t have using Windows.
If you need to improve your Linux skills, or you’re just getting started with Linux, check out my Linux series for beginners below.
Without scripting skills, the hacker will be relegated to using other hackers’ tools. This limits your effectiveness. Every day a new tool is in existence loses effectiveness as security admins come up with defenses.
To develop your own unique tools, you will need to become proficient at least in one of the scripting languages including the BASH shell. These should include one of Perl, Python, or Ruby.
You will need have Database Skills.
If you want to be able to proficiently hack databases, you will need to understand databases and how they work. This includes the SQL language. I would also recommend the mastery of one of the major DBMS’s such SQL Server, Oracle, or MySQL.
